Wind provides an excellent energy source for water pumping around the year in Northern and Central Nigeria. In the north turbines can drive electric pumps and charge batteries for uniterrupted irrigation, and in lower wind regimes mechanical wind pumps are an affordable and dependable solution.

Excellent choice for all of Nigeria, solar (PV) energy can be captured with solar panels and advanced solar trackers to provide predictable and reliable energy for all daylight hours. Some of the energy can be stored in batteries for evening and night time use, such as lighting, refridgeration and other household uses.
